management. Indeed, we see in ETM the adaptation and alignment of the project forwarding role to the EPC mindset and protocols, as we have been evolving to meet their needs in the most efficient manner. Since it is no longer solely about the


transport operation, in order to execute the increasing number of tasks, the project forwarder has to assemble larger teams involving different skills. A top project manager should take full control and take on leadership responsibilities in front of the customer and key suppliers.


EPC parallels This is also a clear parallel with the structure on any EPC project. In our view, the transport phase is part of the wider EPC project and to ensure success it will be beneficial to copy some of the procedures that these companies use. There are also very large differences of


course, particularly in size and scale. An EPC project may have a budget of several thousand million dollars and also several thousand people involved in its execution. A transport project is just a fraction of this and instead of thousands of millions in budget and hundreds of personnel, the team will be considerably smaller. Still, the relevance of this tiny fraction of


the main project, can be critical. It has the ability to jeopardise the success of the overall project delivery or even cause such serious losses. That is precisely why the best market managing practices should be applied to the execution of transport projects as well. These managing practices are being


applied today by all EPCs around the world and it is the core concept of the ETM methodology, applying proven control techniques and management tools to guarantee the optimisation of the transport phase as a key link of the whole success of an EPC project. A significant point within this is when


the ETM methodology should become part of the project; the execution of detailed plans for the future transport operations should happen early. This would include all the potential variants, expenses, handling tools, reinforcements, permits, cargo design variations, inputs, etc. In short, a detailed plan of how all the


relevant components or equipment will be moved is convenient and, in many instances, demanded by customers more and more. When large and heavy cargo is involved,


transport engineering becomes mandatory. What we have to prepare is a very detailed study of how everything is going to be executed, not just pure engineering and

completed even earlier to participate during the cargo design phase. It has been demonstrated in several cases, and we at COORDINADORA have examples of this, where an early integration saves millions of dollars on large projects, particularly in modular, offshore and super-heavy cargo projects where huge structures are to be shipped.


Optimisation The scope for optimisation is greater when it is started early. To sum up, ETM is the successful


transport plans, but also execution permits, assignation of human resources, safety policies, personnel lodging, communications workflows, Custom clearance procedures, etc. Increasingly, customers are asking that a budget is also included in these studies and eventually the study resembles more of a FEED for the transport project. Moreover, there are cases where the


integration of the transport execution team into the EPC project structure shall be


methodology that we propose the rest of the industry should adopt as we serve the EPC companies and major industrial manufacturers. It is not only COORDINADORA that has done this; there are others as well, we just need a term that defines this new level of product.
